The article presents findings of a survey related to shooting law and legislation. When asked how do they feel about Cowboy Action Shooting, 72 percent of the respondents said that it's a great idea, a lot of fun, and a great boost to the gun industry. On being asked whether they have ever written to their elected representatives at any level about their stand on a gun-control issue, 57 percent of people replied in positive. 54 percent of the respondents agreed that hunters who use scoped, in-line muzzleloaders are violating the spirit of the law, and their guns are no more "primitive" than most centerfire deer rifles.
